I Made Another Game! – Lundum Dare #27
So yeah, I entered Lundum Dare for the first time this year! I've known about it for a while but for the first time had the time and (in my opinion) the skills to create a decent game in the given time limit; that's 48 hours for those who don't know.
This years theme was '10 Seconds' which I've seen a few people bitching about but I thing that's awesome.
Why Samphi Isn't Going To Be A Terraria Clone
"Terraria 2.0". "This is just a clone of Terraria". I see these comments dotted around places and while I'm flattered because Terraria rocks, Samphi ISN'T going to be a clone and here's why!
Actually, before we get into this let me just acknowledge that yes ... I know that Samphi resembles Terraria and there's obvious similarities. I never have nor ever will dispute this. Both games are 2D, you dig blocks and build, fight enemies and craft items. What I do dispute is that I'm making a clone. I've never had any hate about this; I just want to explain more about what Samphi is and will be.
0.6 Progress Update
I hate not having regular updates to share, but it's hard to create an interesting update when I've spent the last two weeks writing a website. So first of all apologies if for not updating too regularly, believe me i want to i just find it difficult to find the time and interesting content to show!
Anyway, rest assured I am still working hard on the game and I have some cool new things to show here.
Major Graphics Updates
If you have been following the development of Samphi for a couple of versions, you will know that this update I am currently working on is taking MUCH longer than others. I aimed to update the game every 2 weeks however 0.6 has now being in development for over 2 months. This is due to some overhauls of major game mechanics which include the lighting engine, level generation and movement physics. Most importantly however I have made major update sot the graphics and I am going to show some of that off here.
Welcome to the new site!
After being down for quite some time new the site is now live! (Obviously, you're on it). I didn't update the previous site enough, and that's only becasue I was busy working on the game, however I wanted to change that and I've been wanting to re-design the site for a while so this was a good oppertunity to do so.
